I am taking Lactulose and it works well for me. My doctor wonders why I would always need it. Miralax doesn't work for me. Is there anything OTC that is comparable to Lactulose so that I don't have to depend on a doctor to get the help I need? Thanks
Is Lactulose a prescription product in the USA? I buy a generic 'Actilax' here (AU; on the shelf) but it is still expensive. I pay ~$10/500ml. If I was given a choice, Lactulose wouldn't be at the top of the list (it is for medical reasons: ammonia removal) but in the past plant fiber laxatives have worked well and far more predictably and reliably. Metamucil, (psyllium husk fiber) is a good one and you can just increase the amount to where it becomes effective. The chemical ones I have never been keen on.
